1. Combine first four ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add flour. Batter will be thicker, similar to pancake batter.
2. Using a 1/2-1 tablespoon of batter, scoop out batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Using your spoon make thin, 3" circles with batter. Make sure the circles are "thin."
3. Only make 2-3 cookies at a time. They cool quickly and you need time to add fortunes and fold them.
4. Add fortune to cookies and gently fold cookie in half. Press cookie down against the edge of a mug.
5. Place cookies in a muffin pan to cool.
